    The awesome figure of Otto von Bismarck, the ’Iron Chancellor’, dominated Europe in the late 19th century. His legendary political genius and ruthless will engineered Prussia’s stunning defeat of the Austrian Empire and, in 1871, led to his most dazzling achievement - the defeat of France and the unification of Germany. In this highly acclaimed biography Edward Crankshaw provides a perceptive look at the career of the First Reich’s mighty founder - at his brilliant abilities and severe limitations and at the people who granted him the power to transform the shape and destiny of Europe.

    This is the story of the rise and fall of one man against the background of his country’s history - bloody, tumultuous, yet immensely significant - since the revolution in 1917. Nikita Sergei Khrushchev was born in 1894 at Kalinovka where Great Russia borders the Ukraine. He was the child of peasants driven from the land by poverty. His grandfather had been born a serf; his father was a landless worker travelling to the coal fields of the Donetz Valley in the winter, in spring returning to the land.

    Tolstoy was not always an old man - not always a bearded patriarch fixing the world with the eye of an angry ancient mariner. He started War and Peace when he was 35, and Anna Karenina was finished before he was 50. By then he had fulfilled his genius and deployed all those elements of his titanic temperament that made him world famous. In a richly detailed and sympathetic audiobook on the most creative years of Russia's greatest writer, Edward Crankshaw explores the world of Count Leo Nikolayevich Tolstoy, the elements in it that contributed to his great art, and the nature of the creative processes involved.
